Our Deerfield Beach & Boca Raton Chiropractor Dicusses Three Pillars of Treatment for Car Accident Injuries
Our traditional chiropractic care at Bartell Chiropractic Life Center in Boca Raton employs a triple approach to wellness that is a continuing commitment. The first priority is to ease pain and to determine its root causes. We do nothing to mask the pain, but we try to trace its origin and address the core problem. After an automobile accident, you may not feel pain, but you might experience numbness and tingling, general weakness or localized stiffness and other aches.
It can be important, even if there are no obvious injuries, to have a thorough check up to determine if there are spinal abnormalities that might cause greater problems in the future. Our chiropractor can easily perform these diagnostic procedures in our Boca Raton office, and we offer chiropractic adjustments and spinal retraining for the musculoskeletal injuries that may not be apparent. The non-invasive, gentle procedures help the body to mobilize its own healing forces, and can speed your return to normal activity.
If, however, you experience severe pain following a crash, our treatment specialist will first work to relieve that pain. Herniated discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica that signals inflammation or compression in the lower region of the spine, or radiating pain in the neck or shoulders all require comprehensive treatment. There are no miracle cures, and treatment may extend to multiple visits. Many people do feel relief, though, after just a single adjustment; and then our chiropractor partners with you to develop an individualized schedule for continuing care.
Other symptoms, including headaches, fatigue and a general sense of "un-wellness" will be addressed in different ways. Whiplash may be more difficult to diagnose. Often there are no immediate symptoms, but patients might experience pain days and often weeks later.
Our chiropractor will monitor your progress with a watchful eye during what we term the corrective care phase, and we are always alert to symptoms that might be related. We of well-being as a continuum, and we also offer a program of progressive care to our clients. Even though we do not perform massage therapy in our office, we will be happy to recommend additional local resources for massage and for other treatment and education.
Finally, as a Bartell client, you will move into the wellness care phase. Our clients continue to rely on us for lifestyle advice, personal exercise coaching, nutritional counseling and periodic wellness exams.
